As a modern company, we understand our responsibility to contribute to the preservation and promotion of the cultural heritage of humanity, especially endangered and minority languages. That's why we make our technologies available to all those organizations working to strengthen the language, and thus the heritage, of their culture and community. Our linguistic content creation team looks forward to working with you to develop material that provide members of your community with easy access to their own language as well as the language of their ancestors.

My great passion is learning and exploring foreign languages. After completing my dissertation in Japanese studies, I worked on an English-language textbook on the Ainu language on behalf of Yale University until October 2019. I have been teaching Japanese, Classical Tibetan, and Ainu since as early as 2006. In addition, I have also repeatedly created learning groups that focused on indigenous languages in particular.

My main interest is to apply research results in an application-oriented way. My background is in computational linguistics (especially machine translation, coreference resolution, and network analysis), psychology (consumer psychology and behavioral economics), and database and app design in the field of digital education. With my experience, I hope to contribute to ARK Initiative's efforts to communicate the world's cultures.

Language learning has been one of my fascinations for a long time. Through my studies I gained a lot of know-how in NLP and Machine Learning. Following these studies I joined ARK Initiative with the goal of both improving digital language learning and joining the effort to conserve low resource languages.
